The New Year is coming. You could sit at home and work on your resolutions. Or you could do something useful – meditating with us!
On New Year’s Day we’ll be offering another of our popular series – A Day of Mindfulness. Please join us!
Here are the details.
Day of Mindfulness – New Years Day 2015
Date: Thursday, January 1st Time: 9:00 am until 4:00 pm
Place: Unitarian Universalist Church
1613 East Emerson
There will be alternating periods of sitting and walking/open meditation along with readings, and a recorded Dharma Talk.
The topic of this retreat will be Impermanence. The dharma talk will be one by Carol Wilson offered this year at the Insight Meditation Society. Readings are yet to be determined but guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your cushion.
Refreshments: We will provide tea and coffee. If you would like to bring snacks to share please feel free to bring those.
Lunch: Please provide your own lunch. There is a refrigerator and a microwave available.
Meditation supplies: If you prefer a cushion or bench please bring whatever you normally use. There will be chairs available.
Silence: While there will be readings and recorded talks, participants are encouraged to maintain silence throughout all the activities of the day.
Perfumes/Colognes/Clothing: Because of the closeness of quarters and the sensitivity that can arise in meditation please refrain from wearing perfumes or colognes or from wearing clothing that is made from noise-making, rustling fabrics such as nylon. If you plan to attend please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. And please feel free to forward this on to anyone you think might be interested. Hope to see you then! Jeff O.
